A: The ballot language will appear as follows:


Shall the Parkway C-2 School District Board of Education borrow money in the amount of eighty-seven million dollars ($87,000,000), resulting in no estimated increase to the debt service property tax levy, for the purpose of school maintenance, repairs, renovation and accessibility, including but not limited to roof repairs, HVAC, plumbing, electricity, furnishing and equipping school sites, technology, renovations or additions to high school science labs, elementary classroom walls and security improvements, and issue general obligation bonds for the payment thereof? If this proposition is approved, the adjusted debt service levy of the school district is estimated to remain unchanged at thirty-four cents ($0.34) per one hundred dollars assessed valuation of real and personal property.
